Dear Colleagues!

Dear Colleagues! We would like to invite you to take part in the work of the International scientific and practical conference “Modern trends in the development of chemical technology and engineering in the food and light industry”, dedicated to the 80th anniversary of Academician of NAS RK Kulazhanov Kuralbek Sadibayevich which will be held on 23 February, 2023, at Almaty Technological University, in Almaty.

The conference is dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the outstanding scientist-academician of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Doctor of Chemical Sciences, Professor Kulazhanov Kuralbek Sadibayevich.

Academician K.S. Kulazhanov is the author of more than 580 scientific papers, including 5 monographs, 42 textbooks, and teaching aids for undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students in the field of training process engineers of chemical, petrochemical, food, and light industry of Kazakhstan. Scientific achievements are confirmed by 71 copyright certificates and innovative patents of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Eurasia, Europe, and the USA.

The scientific activity of Academician K.S. Kulazhanov is connected with the formation and development of fundamental and applied research in the field of chemical technology of catalytic synthesis of organic substances, the development of high-performance brake fluids that meet international standards, the creation of environmentally friendly food of a new generation using innovative nanotechnology, ion and laser technologies for complex processing of agricultural products.

Academician Kuralbek Sadibayevich made a significant contribution to the theory of organic synthesis and catalysis of reactions of directed conversion of poly- and bicyclic hydrocarbons, nitroaromatic, and aryl acetylene compounds. Scientific results on the catalytic synthesis of adamantane hydrocarbons have been widely recognized abroad.

Fundamental scientific research conducted by Kuralbek Sadibayevich has direct application in production. New high-performance brake fluids of the MK brand have been introduced for operation in all climatic zones, including the regions of the Far North. Under the leadership of K.S. Kulazhanov more than 70 new organic substances have been synthesized, 28 of which have passed state registration for the safety of biologically active substances. It has been established that the synthesized compounds have psychotropic, anti-inflammatory, hemolytic, antiviral, and analgesic activity. Due to the range of physiological properties, the synthesized compounds have found wide practical applications in medicine and the food industry. The result of the scientific research of K.S. Kulazhanov is the preparation of 7 doctors of sciences and 10 candidates of sciences.

Academician Kuralbek Sadibayevich pays special attention to Kazakhstan’s industrial, innovative, and strategic development. Under the leadership of K.S. Kulazhanov, ATU became the leading technical university in Kazakhstan and Central Asia. Within the walls of the University, young people receive a decent higher engineering and technological education, which is in demand in all sectors of the economy of Kazakhstan.

In 2022, ATU entered the QS World University Ranking and took 561-570 place. In the QS ranking among universities in Asia, our university ranks 301-350 and 14th among universities in the Central Asian region. According to the QS Stars rating, the university was awarded a prestigious award – 4 stars, which corresponds to high international standards.

Scientists, specialists, government and public figures, representatives of business structures and mass media of the Republic of Kazakhstan, countries of the near and far abroad, as well as persons interested in the issues under consideration, are kindly invited to the Conference.
